if you're a blogger or writer of any sort, from the biggest to the just-starting-out, I suspect you might understand the "drafts situation".

I don't blog regularly... I don't even blog semi-regularly. Essentially, I don't blog at all... until I do.

Every once in a while though, I feel the inkling to write. Sometimes, when I don't dismiss the notion, I open up blogger and start a post. I start writing all the things but get side-tracked. Likely, it's kids getting out of bed or thoughts falling out of my head. Regardless of the reason, the writing stops and the post gets lost.

But every now and then I go back and realize I have a number of "drafts". These long lost, half-finished posts that are sitting... waiting. For what? To be deleted? To be shared as is? To be finished?

I see those words in red "draft" and I'm always a little surprised when I click on it - "I wrote that?" I think. It's clear, reading those half-finished posts, that I got caught up in something else and that's life, isn't it? Especially life as a parent of little people.

So tell me, what do you do with your drafts?
